What Is a Druid?
An outcast and wily survivor, the Druid is a master of the natural elements and beasts alike.
The Elemental tree allows the Druid to call forth the destructive side of nature, invoking all manners of wildfires, earthquakes, hurricanes, and more to pummel his enemies. The Elemental playstyle is much like a classic caster with an emphasis on positioning.
The Shape Shifting tree lets the Druid bear arms directly by allowing him to transform into a cunning Werewolf or powerful Werebear. This tree turns the Druid into a melee beast indeed.
The Summoning Skills invokes various wild animals, creatures, and spirits to protect and support the Druid and his allies and destroy his enemies in a whirlwind of fangs and claws.
What Is the Best Druid Build?
The Wind Druid build is widely recognised as one of the most powerful Druid builds due to its powerful area of effect damage output and versatile damage types.
Is the Druid a Good Class for Beginners?
Not especially. Druid builds are generally very specialised and require the use of several skills at once to function best. A summon-oriented playstyle may still function well for a beginner due to its highly defensive nature.
What Is the Best Druid Item?
This depends entirely on your build of choice. Jalal's Mane is likely to make any Druid player happy however due to its versatile bonuses to many stats, including skill level, faster hit recovery, primary attributes, and resistances.
Which Diablo 3 Class Is Most Similar to the Diablo 2 Druid?
As a rather unique hybrid class, the Druid does not have an equivalent in Diablo 3. The class will be making a comeback in the Diablo 4 sequel however.
Which World of Warcraft Class Is Most Similar to the Diablo 2 Druid?
The Druid and the Shaman. The shapeshifting nature of the Diablo 2 Druid is reminiscent of the World of Warcraft Druid, whereas its cataclysmic skills are closer to the Shaman from a thematic standpoint. It is worth noting that the Druid cannot heal in Diablo 2, unlike its World of Warcraft counterpart.
